Lance Townsend craves freedom after years living a structured existence in the Army. But just as he’s about to leave for the trip of a lifetime, Lance receives a letter written by his best friend before his death asking him to look after his daughter. The problem? The adorable little girl’s aunt is the one woman Lance has never been able to forget.

Between raising her adorable niece and living in a home that can only be described as a fixer-upper---emphasis on the fixer part--Carly Quigley is in over her head. So when the man who jilted her years ago shows up at her door claiming her brother asked him to check in on her and the house, she reluctantly accepts. Except having the sexy military man around is distracting, and all either of them can focus on is their undeniable attraction. But Lance isn't planning on staying, which makes him the wrong man for her. Unfortunately, the wrong man has become oh-so-tempting.

Each book in the Wrong Man series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Book one: Kissing Mr. Wrong

I started reading series stories recently and now I’m obsessed. I love the fact that even though each story is a stand alone, you read about characters that are connected to the ones in the previous book. It gives me warm and fuzzies and added bonus is that you get an update on them as well.

This is ...more

This is technically the second book of this series but you definitely do not have to have read the first book to enjoy this one. There was cursing (including f-bombs – one of which was inexplicably dropped in front of a four year old) and on-screen sex, so if those things turn you off from a book, y ...more

Lance and Carly were a lot of fun to read about, but honestly I think little Mya stole the show! She was hilarious and sweet, and you could see how much she loved her aunt Carly and Godfather Lance.

The author injected the story with just enough humor and romance. It didn't feel over the top or unrea ...more

This was a cute read. I thought it was original how Lance came to check on his little goddaughter and ended up her aunt. It wasn't just the usual single parent, etc. plot line. I felt there was a great variety of emotions displayed and expressed well. Fun read!

Sometimes life throws a few curves at us, how we deal with them can change lives. It all started with a letter. One of those “if anything happens to me please send this to Lance.” types of letters. Years earlier Lance and Carly had met at her brother’s wedding – she was ...more

About the author

Kerri Carpenter

Kerri Carpenter began writing in her grandmother's kitchen at the age of seven in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA. A life-long fan of reading, she got lost in the worlds of The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. She also assumed that everyone had characters and plots forming in their heads at all times. Once she turned to romance novels, she couldn't get enough of books with happy endings, so she started writing her own. Now, Kerri writes contemporary romances, usually set in small towns. She enjoys reading, cooking, watching movies, taking Zumba classes, rooting for Pittsburgh sports teams, and anything sparkly. Kerri lives in Northern Virginia with her adorable (and mischievous) poodle mix, Harry.
